Our Current Study
1st and 2nd Corinthians
The city of Corinth was a melting pot of cultures and religions. It was a port city which often resulted in the further immersion of religious and syncretistic practices but also held the great potential for the exportation of goods and ideas. The church in Corinth struggled with being too closely engaged in the city’s culture, thus reflecting the world they lived in. The church took pride in their spiritual knowledge, the leaders they followed, and even the sin they continued to live in.
Paul writes to the church challenging them to the way of the cross, which is love. To not live as the world but to contrast it through a selfless life that lays down its rights, reflects true humility, and loves God and others more than the world. The letters to the Corinthians recognize that true strength is not brought of our own accord but when we allow God to be God in our weakness and our vulnerability. Love defined by God is greater than a love that is defined by the world. Come and study through the letters of Corinthians and discover in a safe and loving community how this kind of love can transform individuals, churches, and cities.
